I never mentioned it anywhere but I was pregnant and just recently had a baby, not even a month ago 🙂

I have been concocting recipes and just saving them up for when I have time to sit down and post them. Today I’ll share with you a very easy and quick shrimp recipe. Why another shrimp recipe? Honestly, because it’s the quickest one I can work on before my newborn wakes up. Ha!

• 1 lb shrimp, peeled & deveined, tail-on
• 2 tbsp olive oil
• 2 tbsp unsalted butter
• 3 garlic cloves, sliced

• ¼ cup Parmigiano-Reggiano, freshly grated

1)  Add oil, butter, and garlic to a cold pan. Turn the heat on to medium. When the garlic starts to get some color and becomes fragrant, add the Italian seasoning.
2)  When the Italian seasoning becomes fragrant, add shrimp, salt and pepper; toss around.
3)  When shrimp starts to pink, sprinkle in Parmigiano-Reggiano and toss to combine.
4)  Turn the heat down to low and add lemon juice. Simmer for 1 minute, then off the heat.
